Organized Bigotry—A History of Hate Groups in Oregon

Thursday, April 23 at 6:00pm

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, all museum events will be held virtually until further notice. Tune in to the museum's Facebook page at 6:00 p.m. on April 23 to watch live and join in the Q&A. You can also catch the video on our YouTube channel after it airs live.

Join Eric Ward, executive director of the Western States Center and a national expert on the history of hate violence, for an examination of hate groups in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. What are the impacts of these groups on People of Color, other minorities, and our democratic institutions? What actions we can take to counter the hate?
